A friend recently contacted me with an issue he was facing at work. He needed help coming up with an idea that might help special needs children have fun and perhaps learn at the same time. Some people, myself included, recommended the use of Virtual Reality. Some might wonder about the benefits of using VR to entertain and teach special needs children. Well it’s quite simple, VR is already being used in Healthcare, clinical therapies, and anxiety disorder treatments. Nevertheless, each case is different, and we should be careful when using VR with children (I’ll leave that to specialized personnel/therapists). But when considering virtual reality and all the options out there, one is left pondering and confused in front of all the possibilities out there. The article is not only meant for my friend, but for anyone looking to try out Virtual Reality. The question to ask is a simple one with many possible answers. Which VR headset should you buy?

ها قد اصبحنا نعيش في المستقبل، هو نفسه المستقبل الذي كنا نتخيله في الأفلام السينمائية منذ أقل من عشر سنوات. فقد أعلنت شرطة دبي خلال معرض الخليج لأمن المعلومات، الذي انتهى الإسبوع الفائت، عن أول روبوت شرطي في الإمارات العربية المتحدة. ووفقا لمقال نشرته جلف نيوز، ستشكل الروبوتات 25 في المئة من قوات الأمن بحلول عام 2030. يعمل الروبوت من خلال ذكاء إصطناعي عوضاً من التحكم به عن بعد عن طريق الحاسوب. يبلغ طول ووزن الروبوت الشرطي حوالي 170 سم و100 كجم. وقد تم توصيل الروبوت إلى قاعدة بيانات من شأنها أن توفر المعلومات المطلوبة لضابط الشرطة عن أي فرد. كما أن باستطاعة الروبوت أن يقوم بمسح للمباني لتحديد نقاط الدخول / الخروج. هذا يعد تطوير مميز وتحسين هائل لقدرات قوات الأمن في الإمارات (The MENA Tech).
Last week, during the first day of Google IO 2017, the company announced Android’s newest version “Android O”. The actual name of the new update won’t be announced until the actual release. The update will of course first hit Google’s own Pixel and Nexus (still supported ones only) devices.
During the first day of Google IO, Google announced that it’s launching the Google Assistant on iOS.
The assistant is available on iOS (USA only for now) as an application that will be able to perform certain tasks, as it does on Android, but with some exceptions to certain OS functions. That means you will be able to make calls, send messages, and play songs, but not set any alarms.
Users have to open the Google Assistant app to activate it, as the home button can not be remapped. Users can also add a widget to make the launching of the Google Assistant faster and easier.

On April 25th, Google rolled out a new update to Google Maps that allows users to save their parking location. The new update will allow you to save parking location, edit it, and share it with friends.
To save your parking location:
- Open Google Maps right after parking
- Tap on the blue button that indicates your location
- Tap on “Save your parking”
Doing so will save your parking indication, which will be indicated with a “You parked here”. “Parking Location” will appear at the bottom of the screen, and tapping on it will allow you to edit your parking location (notes such as exact parking spot), take a picture of it, and share it with friends.
Two of the most interesting Android phones, the LG G6 and Galaxy S8 have just recently become available in the markets. Two devices that offer great features, and that many users will surely enjoy. One thing that might spoil this experience is a phone that suddenly starts “acting weird”. All electronic devices will probably face some problems eventually, from low-end devices to high-end flagship ones. In this post, I will be focusing on simple solutions you can try when your phone starts to lag, slow down, or seem to use more battery. Of course, the below solutions are NOT restricted to the two brands mentioned earlier.
